What a brilliant move!
Dropping like a lead balloon in the polls, your campaign manager was taking the money from Freddie Mac that you said he wasn’t, VP unable to speak to press…
What to do? What to do?
The answer was right there. Wait to return Obama’s private 8:30AM private call about the two of you showing unity on the economic front. Wait until 2:30 PM. Then without letting him know you’ll be going public with your debate bailout, you announce thirty minutes later, just in time for Sean Hannity’s show, that you’re bailing and wonder out loud if Obama will bail -for the sake of the country - with you.
